Clouds are starting to thicken into the area ahead of a strong cold front moving towards the coast. These showers will not last very long but they will bring a small amount of much needed moisture to the area. Showers will start hitting the coast around the late afternoon hours and then the rain will move into the rest of the areas throughout the afternoon. Because of the quick-moving nature of this storm, rainfall totals are not expected to be impressive. at best we will see up to an inch in some locations.
Showers will slacken overnight on Thursday and Friday will bring only partly cloudy skies. High pressure will cause temperatures to warm under mostly cloudy skies into the weekend. There is a slight chance for isolated showers overnight on Saturday at the coast. Other than that Easter weekend is looking dry and warm for all areas.
Next week is proving to be a continuance of this active weather pattern. As of now, models are showing isolated shower activity through the middle of the week. A series of cold fronts will usher in these storms and likely bring some increased winds as well.
Thanks for logging on and have a great day!
